If you remember my review of Broken Dolls (March 14, 2016), then you know how much I am a fan of Tyrolin Puxty! First off, her books are like birthday presents to me; they always come out near my birthday. June 2017, the next one will arrive. Also, she's freaking talented! The first book was amazing and I couldn't get over the cover! (You know me and book covers). So I didn't hesitate when Shattered Girls released; I purchased both the ebook and physical. So let's tell it, yeah?
The original story told Ella's story and how she came to be a doll. It also gave a solid relationship between Ella and Gabby and explained the Professor's mercurial ways. In Shattered Girls, the story picked up with a bit of time gone by. But sinister happenings are going on: People are disappearing!
Also, while people are disappearing, dolls are turning up... dolls like Ella! But how can that be? When Gabby and Ella decide to do some snooping around, Professor goes off the grid, Sianne is up to something in her lab and Gabby's parents have been kidnapped! What is happening and why are there so many dolls... that are replicas of those who've disappeared?
In Shattered Girls, there's a huge conspiracy taking place. One that is using Ella's town as ground zero. I loved how Puxty kept to the mystery of the whole doll story. After the excitement of the first book, I was wondering how book two would play out and I was not disappointed. The story was exciting and kept me interested. It's nothing like you'd imagine- there's no way you can figure what's going or why, other than a plan that mimics "Pinky & the Brain". (hint hint)
Lastly, I want to talk about the book cover again. Like I said, I purchased both the ebook and physical book. The artwork is so beautiful. The covers of both Broken Dolls and Shattered Girls could easily hang on my office walls; I love them so much. I can't wait to see what the third book will look like and bring.
So there it is, in a nutshell- Shattered Girls is a really cool read and I loved it from start to finish. I loved it so much, I gave more of the story than I have any book! Though I had to deal with Gabby's temperamental, teenaged antics, this creative story only got better. Kinda crazy, but definitely better! Check out Tyrolin Puxty's second tale, Shattered Girls! 📚
